Now that you are a member of our Creator Community, you can wear and/or gift your own products, and promote your Shop while doing so. It is very easy! Keep reading to find out how to do it.
When you submit a product to the Shop, you are the only one who can wear and use it.
In case you want others to see and/or buy your items, you need to Publish them. When a product is published, it is immediately sent to Peer Review. Once it passes Peer Review, it is placed on the Catalog.
By publishing your products and making them visible to IMVU customers, they can be seen, purchased, and gifted.
How to put on your own products
Before wearing either a purchased product or your own item, you have to be aware of something important. You cannot put on items with a different gender than your avatar. Therefore, make sure that your avatar and the product you want to wear has the same gender.
For this tutorial, we will use as an example an accessory, a male pair of sunglasses.
You are just a few steps away from wearing your own product. Let’s start!
In your Inventory you will find the products you have purchased and the ones you have submitted to the Shop.
Now, your avatar is wearing the chosen product.
Wearing your own creations is a great way to promote your work.
You can take pictures while wearing your products and publishing them on your Feed!
You can also wear your products while you are in Chat Rooms allowing others to see them!
How to gift your own products
Who does not like receiving gifts? So, why not use gifting as a way to promote your Shop? It can be a great way to advertise your products, attract new customers, and be grateful for the support of the existing ones.
Let’s see an example of how to gift your own products from your Inventory and your Shop. Let’s imagine we want to give as a present the previous pair of sunglasses.
Whether you choose to send a gift from your Inventory or your Shop you will see that STEP 1 and STEP 2 differ depending on the chosen path. From STEP 3 and on, all steps are the same regardless of the option chosen.
After clicking on the product’s name, the Product Preview appears on the screen.
From now on, the following steps are the same regardless of which path you have followed to arrive at this point.
The Recipients Panel pops up. You can choose up to 10 recipients (friends and online users) to send your product.
A Panel with the name/s of the recipient/s, the product you want to send as a gift, and the final cost is displayed on the screen.
You can also add a personalized message if you want.
Finally, a message pops up ensuring that your recipients have received your present.
You did it! Your recipients have received your gift and have been notified by message.
It has never been so easy promoting your products. We encourage you to keep creating your own products.
